212 Magazine Issue 8 (the Guilt issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com, for Autumn/Winter 2019. Instead of focusing on our history of bloody crimes, we chose to explore the personal codes and expressions associated with environmental issues and guilt, in this era defined by humanity’s actions – the Anthropocene. Building on the concept of guilt, we take a closer look at our relationship with life, emotions, nature and animals. We are proud to present our eighth issue, the Guilt issue, for Autumn/Winter 2019. 212 Magazine Issue 8 is not about our history of bloody crimes; rather, it focuses on the personal codes and expressions associated with environmental issues and guilt, in this era defined by humanity’s actions – the Anthropocene. Building on the concept of guilt, we take a closer look at our relationship with life, emotions, nature and animals.

212 magazine is a new biannual publication from Istanbul. It contains short fiction and long-form reportage; distinctive photo essays and revealing interviews. Even though it was born in the city where east meets west (as the love-worn cliche goes), the magazine seeks to transcend the loaded dichotomies of Istanbul’s favourite metaphor, and extends its gaze far beyond the region. The name “212” comes from the area code for Istanbul, but it also happens to be the area code for New York – a piece of misdirection that’s characteristic of the magazine’s ethos: as soon as you try too hard to close in on your subject it has a habit of defying you. Rather than pigeonholing ideas into narrow parameters, 212’s contributors trace connections that will surprise and delight. Each issue is centred around a loose theme – the first is Strange Days. 212 aims to be as challenging as it is influential – to provide an inclusive space for ideas and perspectives to mix without prejudice and better interrogate social, artistic and cultural phenomena from the region and around the world.
